A Web of lies and words that are despised darkness covering the little light she held.

A mess of pain and hurt and confusion
Working like the glue that bonds it together no one can see how she felt.

The thing she thought she new were so few she couldn't tell if it was true. A single tear for her brothers she'd

A war that took the life she once had
And turned it into another lifeless one dead

Another mother without her son
Another sister without a brother
Another father with all his dreams gone
